Is scholarships the best choice?

Is it smart to fall back onto student loans or should I try to get as many scholarships/ pay for it myself????

What would be best?

Scholarships are "free money". They do not require that you pay it back. Student loans are exactly that, a loan. You will have to pay them back. Decide for yourself which is better...

The answer is obvious. I graduated debt free and with some savings because of scholarships. You don't really get to "choose" scholarships the same way as you choose a student loan.
